Very nice review. I did my college report on how online media is changing the way of business. Thank you for your opinions and review
The only reason why, as a person born in the digital age, don't have any sympathy for printed press is that newspapers KNEW that the Internet was approaching. Had the printed press not decided to sit on their asses during this moment, and actually think of ways to profit off of this new technology at that time, they might not be in this boat.
I realize papers have the integrity that news websites don't have...yet. I mean it's not as if during the invention of the newspaper their weren't some shitty ones. I also have a problem with people blaming the death of the printed press is because the populations lack of intelligence. I blame that on the shitty education we are getting, despite living in an era of free information.
Enjoyable review as always guys!
if you're interested in the subject,
just google it.
I've known news bloggers to possess some kind of arrogance over traditional paper outlets, but I've seen the same disdain for internet news coming from traditional press. Like the other media industries, newspapers have clasped their hands over their ears and pretended the digital age was not coming. Well it's here, and it's gaining momentum, thanks in no small part to the rise of tablet computers designed for easy reading. And like you guys very well pointed out, there's no reason why newspaper-quality writing cannot exist on the internet. Now, this would mean having to carry that brand name and put it up against the sea of news sites online, but this is the same deal that existed before hand.
And while it's true people have a tough time with the concept of pay on the internet, we've already seen this model being used for years on gaming websites. "Access" clubs as they call them, provide the same news that normal viewers get from the website, but are not treated to advertisements flying from every corner. This is all newspaper sites have to do as well. And given the rise and availability of flash technology, people can design new ways to place advertisements on websites and control the money flow from them.
Newspapers will be a thing of the past, especially as younger generations are more accustomed to technology. But quality news with integrity never goes out of style. People are learning to be more discerning of the news they hear online, and with that skill comes the attraction of people to particular news sites that they trust. It's a long road, but I'm very curious to see where this all takes us
